How will the school meet my child's spiritual needs?
To nurture the spiritual dimension of our students, class Masses are held monthly. Students have a daily religion class, but more importantly faculty and students live out the Gospel values in their daily lives in their respect for each other and in their awareness of and concern for those less fortunate. Students participate throughout the year in service projects such as Thanksgiving baskets, Toys for Tots, and Operation Rice Bowl. The students' individual parishes remain an active part of their spiritual lives.
Is parental involvement encouraged?
Parents play a key role in their children's education. We welcome parental involvement through active communication with our staff, and by participation in the Home School Association, and attendance at various events.

In warm weather, the students are able to use the play yard of the Don Bosco Youth Center during recess.
